In The Originals season 3 premiere episode 3×01 “For the Next Millenium” Klaus faces Lucien, the first vampire he sired, as the war of the sire lines begins.

Lucien, played by Andrew Lees, isn’t the only sire line progeny arriving in the Big Easy when season 3 begins. He will be joined by Aurora, played by Rebecca Breeds, and Tristan, played by Oliver Ackland. In addition to The Trinity, the witch population grows with the addition of Van, played by Lawrence Kao, and the human population increases with the arrival of Detective Will Kinney, played by Jason Dohring.

According to Joseph Morgan, the relationship between Lucien and his character Klaus is complicated. The Mikaelsons learned how to create vampires when Klaus sired Lucien, “There’s definitely a bond there. We owe each other a lot.” But The Trinity isn’t the only vampires who may be coming to town.

There’s also this element that it’s not just the three of them but they’re in contact with a lot of the sire line for each of us so it’s like, “Hey, remember us? All those vampires that you turned who you’ve now abandoned? Well guess what, we’re not too happy about that and here’s why.”

According to executive producer Julie Plec, “We have a whole series of flashbacks over the first chapter that tell the story of the Originals‘ first year as vampires before the word ‘vampire’ had even been assigned to them, and them learning what they were capable of, where they could fit in, how they could adopt the manners of a rich and cultured family even though they were tattered Vikings on the run. Within those flashbacks, we see the origin story of each of The Trinity, and we understand why The Trinity themselves might have reason to be a little pissed off at our hero family.”
